Manage tags for Objectives

Objectives tags help organize OKRs so users can easily see who is working on tasks that are related to specific, shared themes. Once you create a tag, it will be available to any individual to use when creating or editing an objective. Some ideas for tags are: Company-wide initiatives or themes, Priority levels, and Company-wide KPIs (e.g. Decrease churn).
